Tower Grove Park was established in 1868 thanks to the vision of its founder, Henry Shaw. For nearly 150 years, this beautiful, 289-acre park has helped to define our neighborhood, providing unique design, wildlife habitat, and recreational opportunities ranging from individual pursuits to popular annual festivals.
The park's Board of Director is now in the process of developing a master plan that will serve as a blueprint for the park's future. The Board encourages residents to contribute ideas for the park's use and maintenance. The process will begin next week with an open house.
